Auctioning my Google Chrome comic book

Google sent me two copies of the Google Chrome comic book. It’s a beautifully printed version of the lengthy comic strip explaining Chrome that you’ve probably seen online, and it’s pretty rare.

Following in the footsteps of others, this post marks the start of an auction for one of these rare Chrome comic books. TechCrunch’s auction ended up at over $1500, so don’t be shy! The auction will end at 10pm Mountain Time on Wednesday, September 24. Once this auction is over, I might sell the second one here too – we’ll see.

The highest bidder will need to bring me a tax-deductible check made out to the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado. We’ll then donate the money together. To place a bid, just enter the amount you’re willing to pay in the comments to this post. Please read the other comments and be sure your bid is higher than any others before bidding. Regular non-bidding comments are welcome too!

Win or lose, I hope you’ll consider having your company join the 20+ awesome companies in Colorado that have already joined the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado. Socialthing did, and when it recently sold to AOL, a good chunk of cash went right to the foundation and is being put to work at non-profits right here in our community. Here’s how it works. You pledge 1% of the equity in your company to EFCo so that giving back is totally integrated into the very fabric of your company. If you’d like to learn more about having your company join EFCo, please contact me.

Let the bidding begin!
